We’re gearing up for our winter, 2024, webinar series, and we’ll be digging deeper into some topics we’ve touched upon in previous series. We’ll share techniques that will help you know how much thinning is enough to achieve your forest health and fire risk reduction objectives and go into more detail on the varied impacts of fuel reduction techniques, with emphasis on what happens to soil and plant biomes. We’ll also expand upon recommendations for rangeland management, and share some super interesting detail on high elevation whitebark pine populations.

Each session includes approximately 60 minutes of web-based presentation, with additional time for group interaction. We’ll make use of Zoom, polling, Q&A and Chat features to answer your questions and keep you engaged.
